1959: 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die

Jazz overload almost made me give up on this project altogether, but thankfully I changed my mind.

Ella Fitzgerald Sings The George And Ira Gershwin Song Book

I had to be in the right mood to tackle this one and that is why it has been so long since the last update. Wasn't sure if I could stomach 3+ hours of jazz, but the time passed in a flash and I liked Ella's voice so much that I want to hear her other songbooks too.

Fav: Let's Call the Whole Thing Off

The Genius of Ray Charles

For some reason I have never really warmed to the music of Ray Charles and I must say that listening to this album didn't change that. Plus, isn't it a bit bigheaded to call yourself a genius?

Fav: Alexander's Ragtime Band

Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs

This is a kick-ass album. Makes me want to go watch old Westerns or play some Red Dead Redemption.

Fav: Big Iron

Time Out

Oh look, more jazz to end the decade. Aside from the wonderful "Take Five" nothing much really stood out for me here.

Fav: Take Five
